Zscaler blocking the burp suite interactions

Sathish | Last updated: Mar 28, 2024 05:05PM UTC

Hi Team, We are facing the issue that Zscaler is blocking the burp suite interactions like being unable to add extensions and use collaborators. On troubleshooting this issue we observe this seems to be an SSL issue, Burp is not trusting the Zscaler certificate. As a temporary solution we tried checking by disabling the SSL verification on Zscaler and it's working, but it's no longer secure communication, we are looking for permanent solution on this. Could you tell us how to solve this issue? Thanks.

Hi We have received your email concerning this issue and have responded to it. For transparency's sake, in case any other users are experiencing this issue as well, I will add my reply here: It sounds like you would need to import the Zscaler Root CA cert into the Java cert store that Burp uses. You can find the path for your JDK by going to "Help > Diagnostics" within Burp and looking at the path specified by "java.home". From there, you would need to use keytool to import the certificate into the truststore contained in the "lib/security/" folder.

Hi, Pls guide us on how to use key-tool to do that? Do we need to install JDK first to get the keytool right?
